The book “Son”, by Lois Lowry has something in common with the book “Moon Over Manifest” by Claire Vanderpool. In the book "son", Claire (a character) has to keep her secret of being Gabe's mother secret and it hurts her. She stays hidden and she watches over Gabe without anyone finding out that she is his mother. She keeps the secret until she is about to die and then she tells Gabe indirectly. In the book "Moon Over Manifest", by Claire Vanderpool, Miss Sadie has to keep the secret that she is Ned's real mother and Ned ends up dying at war. She never got the chance to tell him and No one knows but she and, now, Abilene. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0547887205, Hardcover)

They called her Water Claire. When she washed up on their shore, no one knew that she came from a society where emotions and colors didn’t exist. That she had become a Vessel at age thirteen. That she had carried a Product at age fourteen. That it had been stolen from her body. Claire had a son. But what became of him she never knew. What was his name? Was he even alive?  She was supposed to forget him, but that was impossible. Now Claire will stop at nothing to find her child, even if it means making an unimaginable sacrifice.

Son thrusts readers once again into the chilling world of the Newbery Medal winning book, The Giver, as well as Gathering Blue and Messenger where a new hero emerges. In this thrilling series finale, the startling and long-awaited conclusion to Lois Lowry’s epic tale culminates in a final clash between good and evil.
